WANT TO GET IN THAT DREAM SCHOOL? YOU PROBABLY WON’T GET IT IN BECAUSE OF YOUR RACE. SMH

Racism comes in many forms and fashions. You get it everywhere. But when racism denies you the chance to better yourself and your life, then there is a problem. Racism in admissions at universities is popular among people, but not spoken on.  The University of California Berkeley has had some incidents of racism. You have people who have testimonies about the racism that has happened to them on that campus. SMH. There was an incident in admissions that happened. And it’s fucked up, but it happens. A professor was on admissions and staff made very racist remarks about the applicant, who was latina.  The professor asked them to stop and they told the professor the only reason the applicants application was even on top was because of her last name. The professor was latina as well, but married to a white man. She couldn’t believe it. UC Berkeley is supposed to be one of the most diverse schools in the nation might I add. I think this is a problem that people should look into and should be spoken on more. Check out the testimony of racism below.
